Abstract

<p>This 13-year retrospective study investigated risk factors for candidemia secondary to Candida species with increased likelihood of fluconazole resistance. Of 344 candidemia cases, 23 were caused by C glabrata or C krusei (CGCK). Age &gt;2 years, recent fluconazole exposure, and recent surgery were independent risk factors for CGCK.</p>
